Jeremy Schenkel felt safe – right up to the moment he came face to face with one of the dozens of violent black mobs that terrorized Philadelphia last summer.
Schenkel survived the ensuing assault with no major broken bones. A few minutes later, the mob’s next victim was not so fortunate: They left him beaten, bloody and unconscious.
Roger McBride and Lulu Campbell did not want to depend on luck. They used a gun. It may have saved their lives. It certainly kept them from harm.
They are just two of the more than 100,000 people who last year defended themselves with guns when luck was not enough.
Once again, Flaherty portrays blacks only as mob-prone thugs who are out to rob and/or kill you.
Flaherty also adds this:
No one knows how often guns are used for self defense. The Cato Institute says anywhere from 100,000 to one million times a year. But of course, the work of author John Lott is the best place to go for more of this kind of information.
In fact, Lott's research methods are suspect, and he has pushed discredited claims.
